> Thank you Robin. Do you think callings such as PBPBPS are not suitable?

No.  As is commonly the case with variations, these calls affect bells both 
before and after the lead-end.  Therefore, if you want to use a calling that 
ends with a call, you must also *start* with the call -- in this case, a 
Grandsire start, then continue ringing Antelope -- otherwise it won't come 

While this is fine for the beginning of a touch -- you just explain to the 
band what to do -- it doesn't really work in a quarter-peal when you are 
mixing extents of different callings.  Best just to stick to extents that 
don't end with a call.
